in 2013, but it was written to address a british situation in which religion is really pretty remote for most people's daily experience. this is not a country where most people go to church sunday or arrive in a new town and think, which church should we join? they bet on sunday mornings doing off sensible human things. medical you got to make a stab at talking people what it feels like. one way that's a considerable challenge because pouring one handful of experience into the head of a reader is tricky. on the other hand, that's what books excel out, fiction as well as nonfiction. they are great at creating sympathy for positions you don't share yourself. books are virtually the only medium that tell you what it's like being somebody else, and what i wanted to do is to draw on myself with my sample, kind of demonstrate what the inside of my head feels like. it's the kind of memoir, more argumentative. it's a kind of explanation by demonstration of the way the bits slop together assuming absolutely nothing in the way of knowledge and kind of assumptions, so everything has to get defi

housing is being contested by freedom from religion, a madison, wisconsin based atheist organization that believes the exemptions give religious groups and unfair advantage and is unconstitutional. the government lawyers say that leaders can be ministers, too, since atheism can function as a religion. to discuss this ongoing battle i was joined by the host of the sex talk politics, and religion hour and a word member of the american atheist. i started off by asking her if other atheist organizations around the country agree with the stance of freedom from religion. >> the freedom from religion organization says absolutely atheists are not churches. we look at what the law actually says, ministers of the gospel are entitled to take tax breaks for their housing, but here's the thing. any nonprofit organization in the u.s. should either be able to be treated as people who are doing good work or they should get the same protections that religious organizations do. the problem is that atheist groups are not churches. we are not -- none of the groups are using a supernatural claim to a hig

growing doubts on religion and the pentecostal doctrine those doubts have no role of nation. even the loss of confidence in the divine nature the bible had not affected my relationship with jesus. which i compartmentalized. no matter where i was in my spiritual life jesus was a constant companion. i continually sensed his presence. it was easy to close my eyes and visually imagine jesus being their and listening to me. to see jesus hands and things that did or didn't work out are filled with the holy ghost and goosebumps like a breeze coming across physically internally. eight confirmation of jesus as tangible permanent presence in my life. with the panic attacks and the understanding of the nervous system on my perception of reality that special personal relationship with jesus was finally challenged. it was a step too far in my reassessment of my faith. i realized i had drawn a circle around my relationship with jesus. it was like a crime scene tape and area that no one could enter. as i grew older and more skeptical, by internally debated the authorship of the bible the fallacies of man

belief in god, and for our founding fathers belief in god was judeo-christian religion. that we would lose our liberty, and i begin with this thinking, these were geniuses that created our declaration for independence, our constitution, bill of rights, and why would they think that? and how is it that america today has allowed the aclu step-by-step to make this into a very secular nation where it's almost a crime to even have an expression of judeo-christian belief in a school or in the public square, or as i'm arguing, the aclu is about to move in to the churches to criminalize christianity. i think that's where it's ultimately headed. when i started researching "bad samaritans," i realized that the foundation of the aclu was in radical socialism and even communism. the founders, some of the original board members were writing books like soviet-american. it had its origin, the aclu, in the end of world war i and the very sabbaticals who opposed going into the military, including the founder of the organization itself. now, the evolution of the aclu was to embrace these socialists rad

acknowledge many of these same things, but every other religion on the face of the earth puts the burden of salvation upon you. you have to earn salvation by adhering to their laws and to their principles. but true christianity... now sad to say, a lot of christianity basically has that same mentality and they...they say you got to be good and do all of these things to be accepted by god. but true christianity preaches no, we have a savior... that we could never save ourselves. we could never be holy enough, and so god sent his son. he paid the debt that we couldn't pay. you couldn't ever pay enough to atone for all of your sins, so jesus atoned for it. jesus paid, and all you got to do is make him your savior and if he is your savior then you get into heaven. you get into right relationship with god based on what jesus did and not what you do. we are the only religion on the planet that has that concept. no other religion has this. what a huge distinction between christianity and any other religion and it is the distinguishing characteristic. it's what makes life awesome. as it says in
